Sonic and Amy are sleeping in bed when Sonic hears their baby cry. He dashes to the room to check, but he suddenly notices a dark mysterious figure over the crib. “Isn’t it just adorable of how they just lay there, all innocent like?” he says in a sinister tone. “Who are you?!” Sonic snarls. “Just an old friend…”. “What do you mean?” the azar hedgehog questions, not recognizing him. “That doesn’t matter right now.” He gets closer to the baby. Sonic then shouts “Get away from the her!”; which then causes Amy to come to the nursery’s doorway and see what was happening. “Honey, what’s going on?” she asks with concern. “Nothing, just go back to bed.” The mysterious guy attempts to snatch the baby, but Amy interferes. She summons her hammer and swings it to this face; and cradles her daughter in her arms. “It’s okay, it’s okay.” she coos motherly to the child. The figure is now on the ground when he notices some blood dripping from his bottom lip. He wipes it away and growls, “You little…”. Before anyone can notices, he teleports himself in front of the pink hedgehog, and captures her instead. Sonic hurries to grab the baby before she falls to the ground. The baby starts to cry, wanting her mother back. The figure with Amy struggling the escape from his grasp, leave the hut through the now open window. “SONIC!” she shouts from the distance. “AMY!” Sonic calls out while at the window. The baby cries louder, causing Sonic to realize he can’t go after her, not yet anyway. After he calms her down and lays her back in the crib, he calls Tails on his communicator. Meanwhile Tails is in bed, then tiredly wakes up hearing his communicator go off. “What is it Sonic, it’s two in the morning…” he answers still groggy from the day’s events. “I need you to gather everyone to my place, NOW!” he demands. “Sonic what happened?” the fox asks concerned. “There’s no time to explain, just hurry!”
Minutes later, Sonic was on the couch, anxiously waiting for his friends to arrive. Then Sonic heard a knock on the door, and gets up to answer it. “What was so important?” Tails asked. “Someone took Amy.” Sonic states, depressed. “What?!” everyone else shouts socked. Then they started to flood Sonic with questions; such as, “Do you know who it was?” “Did you try to chase him?” and “Is she injured?” “Stop with the questions! …Please.” The hedgehog yelled, not being able to control his anxiety. Rouge noticed this and walked up, cautiously to him. “We’re sorry we’re just worried about Amy.”, she says as she tries to calm him down. “We can start looking tonight if you want to.” she continued. “But what about-” “I can take care of her,” she interrupts, “and besides you need to find out where your wife is.” Sonic then ponders if he’s ready to do so, but he knows that the sooner they do the better chance they have of finding his love. He sighs, “Alright…” he mumbles with slight glee. “Alright! Let’s go save Amy!” Knuckles cheers. Everyone but Rouge runs out the door, then Sonic realizes something. He charges back to the doorway. “Rouge!” he calls. “If Olivia gives you any trouble, feel free to contact me!” Rouge chuckles and says, “I will, and don’t worry, I got this.”, as she grins. “Thanks Rouge.” he smiles back. He then turns around and meets up with the rest of the group.
After a few feet of running, they realize they have no way to track Amy’s location. “Now what are we going to do?” Sonic questions. Tails then remembers that he packed something that could be of use with him. “I-I’ve got a tracking device, all it needs is a sample of her DNA.” he uttered. “But, how can we get a sample of her DNA now?” the twin-tailed fox asked himself with despair in his voice. Sticks reaches into her sock and pulled out a few strands of pink quills. “Here u go.” she hands them to Tails. Tails thanks her, while Sonic looks confused. “How exactly did you get that?” he asked her while pointing at the sample. “Oh I’ve got a sample of everyone’s fur; Tails’ fur, Knuckles’ dreed locks, Rouges, fur, and even your own quills” Sticks states casually. “Just in case I would need to clone any of you.” Knuckles then crosses his arms, “Not cool, Sticks.” Suddenly, Tails’ tracking device started to make quite beeping sounds. “I’ve got her on our trail!” he shouts excitedly. “Well then let’s go!” Sonic cheers. They all started following the direction of where the machine guided them. After three hours of searching, they decided to rest for the night. Sonic was disappointed that they couldn’t find her. They were on a large hill that had a perfect view of the night sky; which is what Sonic was staring at while lying on the grass. Tails noticed how his big brother was acting and tried to cheer him up. “Don’t worry Sonic, we’ll find her; I just know it.” Sonic doesn’t respond. Tails then chooses to leave him alone, and turns around to sleep.
In a dark prison like cell, Amy is chained to a wall. She tries to break the chains, or at least unhinge them form the walls, but she later grows tired. In the hall next to the cells bars, she hears footsteps. They get closer and she looks up to see who it could be; but since it was so dark all she could see was a single glowing red eye in the shadows. “You!” Amy growls at the figure. “Yes, it’s me!” he answers in a sarcastic tone. “You can’t keep me here forever,” she uttered. “Sonic will come here and beat you down!” “Sure I can, you just have to behave.” He then starts to pace around the room, while Amy gave him a raging glare. After what seemed like hours he stops and askes, “Tell me… how long do you think it would be before your daughter forgets who you are?” Amy was struck by surprise and started to panic. The figure started to snicker at his own sick joke. “It was a joke; you were supposed to laugh.” he says emotionless. “LAUGH!” he shouts at her. There’s then a moment of silence between the two, while the tension grew. He then chuckles to himself and says, “It doesn’t matter” sinisterly. He snaps his fingers and Amy is surrounded by an aqua aura. She then tries to get out of its grasp, but realizes that she’s being squeezed somehow. Five minutes pass and the figure decides that she’s had enough. “Alright, I think we’re done here.”. The aura goes away and Amy’s allowed to breathe normally. “We’ll check on you later.” he utters while leaving the cell. Amy then looks up to the ceiling and cries, “Sonic, please hurry!”
It’s now dawn and Sonic and the gang have all just woke up. Tails stretches from his slumber and calls for his big brother. “Hey Sonic-” He says as he looked over to see that he was gone. The fox then stands up to looks for him. He then spots him sitting at the edge of a cliff. “Sonic?” he goes to sit next to him. “Sonic, what are you doing over here?”, he asks while noticing a desolate look on Sonic’s face. “Sonic, are you okay?” he asked concerned. Sonic finally speaks up, “I’ve just been thinking.” He pauses. “What if the guy that kidnapped her… does something to her? I mean, what if we find her and she’s…” he trails off as tears start to build up. Tails puts a hand on Sonic’s shoulder. “Don’t think like that! I’m sure that when we find her she’ll be more than happy to see you.” Tails then tries to come up with something, anything, to cheer him up. “We were just about to have some breakfast and if you want to afterwards, we can look then.” he suggests. “I don’t know Tails…” Tails then came up with something, “There’s chili dogs!” Sonic chuckles to the thought, “Okay we can do that.” he says with his signature smirk.
It was now late in the night, and there still was no sign of Amy. They stopped to rest a bit and catch their breath. “*Pant* come on Tails, *pant* are we even close to her?” Sonic questioned in between breathes. “Yeah. I bet that thing doesn’t even work!” Knuckles stated. “It works, it’s just that we haven’t gotten a strong-” suddenly the tracker started to beep faster; everyone looks in Tails’ direction in shock. “Tails… what was that?” Sonic asked, completely surprised. “The signal… i-it’s getting stronger!” he shouted with glee. He paces in different directions to see where it’s strongest. “This way!” Tails pointed towards north, and started flying his way there as everyone else followed. A few minutes later, they found an abandoned prison. “This is it!” Tails calls out. “Search for a way inside!” he exclaimed. At the side of the building, Sonic found a small hole big enough for him to crawl through. “Guys I found one! But I think only I can go through!” he told the group. “That’s okay, we’ll find another way inside!” Tails replied. Sonic gave them a thumbs up and crawled through the hole. Once inside, he saw the figure again. “You!” Sonic shouted at him with vengeance. “I’ve been expecting you.” he taunted. Sonic was now only 10 feet away from him. “Where is she?!” he shrieked. The figure crossed his arms and uttered, “Like I would tell you”. He snapped his fingers causing Sonic to be caught in an aqua aura. Sonic started to break free, but it was no use. “Silly hedgehog, you still don’t recognize me?” The figure asked. “Ugh, why should I?!” The figure then walked over to a light switch. “Oh I don’t know… maybe because we were best friends.” Sonic then processed those words through his mind. ‘No it can’t be…’ The figure then turned the lights on, it was true. It was his old friend… Shadow.
Sonic then had a good look at him. He had for the most part looked the same. Except now he had a dark brown torn cape around his neck and his right eye had a huge scar, he was probably blind in it as well. “What?!” Sonic was shocked of how one of his closest friends from his past could’ve turned into this. “What happened to you, Shadow?” Shadow got closer to him, “As if you really care.” He snarled. He knew that Sonic would demand to find out, so he answered him anyway. “Well if you must know,” he started to pace around the hedgehog still apprehended by the aura. “During our lesson in self-defense, I met a girl. She was the kindest sweetest person one can ever know.” he stated. “That was until when she was killed right in front of me, it broke my heart.” He touched his chest remembering her death. “With her gone I didn’t know what to do with my life. I quit my combat lessons, and went into a deep depression.” “And what do I have to do with all this?” Sonic questioned him. Shadow ran right in front of him and snapped. “You were there when it happened!” he shouted. “I saw you only 10 feet away from it all, talking to no other than your wife.” “Nether of you even tried to help at all!” he raged on. Sonic couldn’t even remember anything like that happening at all. Amy couldn’t either, cause she would’ve brought the subject up at least once before. “And since I can’t have Maria,” he steps back getting ready to use his powers. He continued “You can’t have her.”
Suddenly loud banging could be heard throughout the room. “What the hell is that?!” the dark hedgehog shouted. Then the wall caved in, causing brick and cement to forcefully fall to the ground. After the dust had cleared through the room they were able to see what caused it. Knuckles, Tails, and Sticks had literally broke the fourth wall. “Sonic!” the three shouted. “Hey it’s nice to see you guys, but I’m kind of stuck here.” He sheepishly muttered. “No problem!” Knuckles said while cracking his knuckles. He found the source of where the aura was from and saw that it was another hedgehog with white quills. “Now we can do this the easy way, or the hard way.” Knuckles remarked. Silver then spoke, “Oh would you look at the time.” he said as he looked at a pretend watch on his wrist. He then ran outside, jumped over a nearby cliff and did the Goofy yell. Knuckles looked back to everyone else. “…I guess he chose the easy way.” Sonic was now released and could finally put an end to this. “Guys get out of here and find Amy, this may get ugly.” He announced as his quills started to turn into a navy blue. “But Sonic-” Sonic was now in his dark form. “I said go!!” he interrupted Tails. “Mommy!” Shadow whimpered.
Amy was sitting on the ground in her cell when she heard footsteps. She looked up and saw Knuckles, Tails, and Sticks. “Guys you’re here!” she cheered. Knuckles then used all of his strength to pry open the bars. “Where’s Sonic?” Knuckles went over to break the chains. “Don’t worry about him, he’s got it covered.” Tails stated. Amy was confused on his choice of words. In the hall they heard Shadow’s plea, “No-No-No! Please not the-” then he was thrown to the wall next to the cell. Sonic rushed towards the hedgehog and saw Amy. “Amy!” “Sonic!” the yelled for each other. Sonic ran up to her and held her into an embrace. “I thought I’d never see u again.” he held her tightly as tears started to drop onto his cheeks. “I thought so too.” she confirmed. Sonic pulled away from her so he could look into her jade eyes, and their lips connected. “Ew.” Sticks uttered. “Yeah PDA much.” Knuckles added. “You two be quiet, they’re having a moment!” Tails confronted them. The two disconnect from their needed affection. “Where’s Olivia?” Amy asked Sonic. “She’s okay, Rouge is taking care of her.” Tails then looked at his wrist watch. “Not to ruin the moment, but I think we should be headed home.” he stated. “Yeah it is pretty late.” Sonic agreed. He then started to help Amy stand up, but stopped once she winced in pain. “What’s wrong?” he asked concerned. “It’s my leg; I don’t think I can walk.” He knew she was telling the truth, because she never lies about her being in pain. “That’s okay, Ames.” He then lifted her up so he could carry her bridal style.
The next morning Sonic and Amy had arrived home. Amy said her leg was feeling better by now, so he could let her down. Sonic opened the door and see Olivia and Rouge together. “You’re back!” Rouge shouted happily. She went up to Amy and gave her a hug. “I missed you too Rouge.” Amy said as she hugged her back. Rouge released her grip and noticed that her makeup was running. “Oh this darn cheap mascara!” she muttered while whipping it away. “Well I’ll see you guys later.” She headed towards the door. “Love y’all!” “You too!” Sonic and Amy replied. Once Rouge had closed the door they started to look into each other’s eyes. “I love you Amy.” Sonic said as he placed his right hand on Amy’s cheek. “I love you too, Sonic.” Then they shared another kiss as Olivia looked at her parents in awe.
